Google has begun to use some of the latest machine learning techniques to predict the likelihood of a patient’s death, this technique was able to furnish around 95% accuracy. So AIs in the near future can be used in the healthcare industry to predict the probability of a patient’s death in just time the time period of 24 hours of admittance, by looking at the variables of the patient’s health record and also takes into account the demographics, health history of the patient.

Another research group used Machine learning to predict the performance of the stock market which is based on publicly available earnings document. The model basically attempted to find a relationship between language content and impact on the price of the stock. This model showcased an accuracy of around 62% times which merely predicts a low performing stock.

AI, Machine learning will surely be going to evolve the human, machine interaction. Many of the companies nowadays are working to enhance the relationship between machine and human. Nowadays there are many companies are working to improve AI, by making it understand the nuances of human interaction, by making the apps recognize more than what the human is telling in words. In the entire 2019, it is predicted that AIs will continue to evolve, many of the things.

Hockey Greats: Three Players to Know

Published

on

By

Ice hockey is a North American sport that is descended from a similar European sport. Like American football and baseball, it took root in the new world and became more popular than its ancestor. The official birth of the game dates back to Montreal, Canada in 1875 where it was played on a rink the same size as the ones used today. In over a century of competition, many titans of the game have ascended and dominated to take their place in the pantheon of greats. These three titans stand out among all the other luminaries as the best to ever lace up a pair of skates.

Wayne Gretzky

You don’t get the nickname “the great one” for nothing. Wayne Gretzky isn’t the Michael Jordan of Hockey, Michael Jordan is the Wayne Gretzky of basketball. He dominated his sport like few other athletes. Gretzky notched over 200 points (goals plus assists) in a single season in four separate years; no other player has done it once. He won the Stanley Cup four times and was named most valuable player a staggering nine times. When he was traded to the Los Angeles Kings, he instantly turned Southern California into a rabid fandom that galvanized interest in the game in the early 1990s. He retired with 61 National Hockey League records and nearly two decades later, he still holds 60 of them.

Gordie Howe

While Wayne Gretzky was a vocal advocate against fighting in hockey; Gordie Howe did his talking with his fists. When a player scores a goal, an assist, and gets into a fight, NHL fans call this the “Gordie Howe hat trick.” However, he and Gretzky were more alike than different. Howe is the only other player to break the career 800-goal mark. Howe’s toughness, grit, and muscle embodied what Canadians love about their national winter sport. Gretzky broke most of the records he set, but Howe’s 26 seasons in the league still put him ahead of everyone else.

Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr may be the odd man out on this list as the only defender, but his style of play was every bit as valuable as the prolific scorers. He won three consecutive league MVP trophies and was no slouch as a scorer either. He revolutionized the way defenders attack on power plays and still holds the record for most goals and points by a defender in a single season. He is also the only defender to ever lead the league in scoring during a season. Orr is best known for “the goal,” a give-and-go shot slapped home by Orr to give the Boston Bruins their first Stanley Cup. Even casual hockey fans are familiar with the photo of a horizontal and exuberant Orr flying through the air after netting the biggest goal in Bruins history.

Future generations may take their place but these legends will continue to live on.

Ceramic Vs Carbon Infrared Saunas – Know Which is Better

Published

on

By

Before choosing to buy an infrared sauna based on size, style, and price, make sure to consider the heating element used. It can be difficult to tell the real differences between ceramic and carbon infrared saunas, and even more difficult to judge which is better.

Infrared saunas are an innovative new way to get all the healthy and long-lasting benefits of a sauna. Instead of sitting in stifling hot air in an enclosed room like in a traditional Finnish or steam sauna, infrared saunas use infrared radiation to safely and efficiently to help participants work up a healthy sweat. Infrared is very similar to sunlight, of course without the harmful ultraviolet rays.

There are many types of infrared saunas available for people who wish to enjoy them for their own use. Some public areas, such as spas and health clubs, are now adding infrared saunas to their traditional steam saunas. Infrared saunas can also be purchased over the Internet and pieced together at home. Home infrared saunas come in varying sizes, shapes, and styles. They are constructed with different types of wood. Even smaller portable models that easy fold up and wheel out of the way are now on the market. Whatever model suits you, one of the most important considerations for your home infrared sauna is the type of heating element used.

Many infrared saunas are outfitted with several thin, flat carbon fiber panels at varying locations in the sauna to distribute a uniform infrared heat. They are sometimes enclosed in fiberglass for protection and covering. Carbon panels are slightly flexible and therefore less likely to break in transit to your home sauna. Because of their flat, wide shape, they are capable of having a very large surface area which is important for a quality infrared sauna heating element.

Ceramic sheets, like carbon fiber sheets, have a large surface area and are built into the inner walls of a sauna on all sides. Ceramic is rather delicate so care must be used in shipping and handling the material prior to installation in your sauna. They are generally more expensive than carbon fiber heaters, but proponents say that they deliver true far infrared radiation whereas carbon panels only heat up and deliver simple radiant heat. This can induce perspiration, but doesn’t give you the same soft tissue benefits as ceramic heaters.

It is important to know that some Internet websites will compare carbon sheets to ceramic rods, which is like comparing apples to oranges. Rods are going to be more inefficient than plates or sheets, no matter what they are made out of. Rods have a smaller surface area and will require a higher surface temperature to run, so they will be worse than both carbon and ceramic plates. Keep that in mind when looking at information about carbon versus ceramic heating elements.

By now you’re probably confused because the pros and cons of both carbon fiber and ceramic sound awfully similar. Though ceramic does have a slightly higher emissivity (ability to radiate infrared), it is not significantly higher than those of carbon sheets. In general, ceramics are regarded as superior. But in truth, the material of construction doesn’t matter as much as the surface temperature and the surface area of a particular model of heater.

Of course, considerations like your budget and your personal sense of style will influence your decision in which home sauna to buy. But don’t neglect considering the type of heating element used. It is a very important choice and can’t be underestimated.

The Coronavirus lockdown is changing every aspect of the world. In particular, people are realizing that formal employment will not be a future certainty and thus looking at how to make extra money during Covid-19.

  • The entire affiliate marketing model is based upon honesty.

During the uncertainty and volatility of Coronavirus, it is essential that your marketing efforts are built on trust. You as an affiliate trust your product owners for the commissions you earn, while your prospects trust you for recommending the right products.

White House Pecan Pie

Published

By

Over the James river and through the woods of Dinwiddie County to grandmother’s house we went for the holidays. The pecan pie alone was well worth the trip!

My grandmother, “Meme”, found her pecan pie recipe printed in The Progress-Index on Wednesday February 26, 1964 and was said to be “Mrs. Landon B. Johnson’s Favorite Pie” (typo and all). The recipe is actually the masterpiece of Zephyr Wright, the Johnson family’s White House cook.

White House Pecan Pie

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup dark corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

3 eggs

2 cups coarsely chopped pecans

Fluted unbaked pastry shell in a 9-inch pie pan or plate

Allow the butter to stand in a covered medium mixing bowl at room temperature until it is extremely soft. Add sugar, corn syrup, salt and vanilla; with a sturdy hand rotary beater or mixing spoon, beat until thoroughly blended. Add eggs and beat gently just until blended. Fold in the pecans. Pour into pastry shell. Bake in a moderate (375 degrees) oven on the rack directly below the center rack until top is toasted brown and filling is set in center when pie is gently shaken – about 40 to 50 minutes.

Pastry edge should be browned and the bottom pastry a pale gold. If top of pie gets very dark toward end of baking time, place a tent of foil over it. Cool on wire rack. If desired, serve with unsweetened whipped cream.

I make this pie every Thanksgiving and Christmas because it’s absolutely delicious and brings back memories of holidays spent at Meme’s Farm in Ford, VA.

Enjoy!

Paul McCartney and Wings: Wings At the Speed of Sound (1976)

Published

on

By

It’s never easy being in a band with Paul McCartney. This is the man who wrote the first stadium sing a long (She Loves You), the highest selling UK.no 1 (Mull of Kintyre), the best James Bond rocker (‘Live and Let Die’), the greatest love song of the seventies (‘Maybe I’m Amazed’) the superb Michael Jackson pop duet (‘Say Say Say’), the perfect disco number (‘Silly Love Songs’), the most covered song of all time (‘Yesterday’), the most accomplished of the many John Lennon tributes (‘Here Today’), the Beatles biggest hit (‘Hey Jude’) and the 21st century Kanye West zeitgeist (‘Four Five Seconds’). So, when you write an album with him, you’re sure to come out the loser. So is the summary of Wings’ fifth album, an album that assured its listeners and that Wings’ were a true band- but suffered from the hands of democratic leeway.

And its no fault of the band. They all tried their hand at writing (yes, Linda did too). They all took turns to sing, they all took turns to express themselves, they all worked. But they were in the company of Paul McCartney, who with ‘Let Em In’ and ‘Silly Love Songs’ alone, battered the band senseless with their lesser works. Little wonder these songs became the choice hits, the first a piano ditty par excellence, the second one of the most accomplished bass laden disco works of the seventies (the Bee Gees caught onto the act the following year).

With mainstays Denny Laine and Linda McCartney complete with guitar wizard Jimmy McCulloch and drummer Joe English each spotting a lead vocal, ‘Speed’ proved the only studio album where the entire unit had a chance to perform; with mixed success. ‘Wino Junko’ brewed with acute honesty, but smelt of seventies excess. Joe English’s spot on ‘Must Do Something About It’ had an interesting opening line, but nothing else. Linda’s ‘Cook of The House’ did little to dispel the rumour she couldn’t sing, write nor dance. Only Denny Laine provided anything of worth, his ‘Time to Hide’ a worthwhile song, but that too paled in comparison to ‘The Note You Never Wrote’, McCartney’s song for him. Floydian in its atmosphere, Beatly in its delivery, ‘Note’ featured McCartney’s finest set of lyrics on the album, reminiscent of the chilling images he brought to ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and ‘She’s Leaving Home’, brought further to life by McCulloch’s sterling guitar solo.

The rest of the album was pure McCartney, embellished with his pop genius, simmering rock guitar lines, disco beats and ersatz pop. ‘Let Em In’, the album’s opener, sullied with pop perfect horns not heard since ‘Lady Madonna’, Wings’ greatest album opener after the unsurpassable ‘Band On The Run’. ‘She’s My Baby’ oozed in fifties pastiche that nobody bar McCartney could pull off. ‘Warm and Beautiful’ happily joined ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and ‘My Love’ as one of McCartney’s best post Beatles love song, lovingly rearranged for string quartet to commemorate Linda McCartney’s untimely demise in 1998.

‘Silly Love Songs’, a pulsating dance track, brought credibility to sixties musicians disco hopping (Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger followed suit). McCartney’s most indelible and enduring bass line, ‘Silly’ drove itself from ersatz funk, a natural stadium anthem and one of the highlights of the ‘Wings Over America’ album.

A very strong half an album, it is all the more disappointing how much better it might have been had McCartney written the entire thing (unlike ‘Red Rose Speedway’, which may have benefited from a second writer).

When McCartney writes, the album’ s a strong seventies rocker, a fine four star follow- up to ‘Venus and Mars’. When the others write, the songs sound like a two star amateur record. ‘Speed’ finds itself centered in the middle, a three star album, befitting of greater potential than the album released.

Break Ups – How to Respond to "You Deserve Someone Better"

Published

on

By

When a relationship is coming to an end, little makes sense. This is even more apparent if you’re the person who is being dumped. Depending on how compassionate your lover is they may try and let you down easy. One very common phrase that people hear during a break up is “you deserve someone better.” If you’re on the receiving end of that, you may be a bit mystified. What exactly does it mean and what specifically should you be saying in response to it?

When your lover says, “you deserve someone better,” you’re likely going to take that to mean that they believe they’re not good enough for you. It’s touching when someone says that because you assume it means they really value you and believe that they can’t measure up. Don’t be too taken with it though until you truly understand the intention behind the words. Your ex is counting on you taking it as a compliment, when in fact you shouldn’t. All they are likely doing is trying to let you down easy.

The belief behind the idea that you deserve a partner who is better suggests that your ex doesn’t value themselves enough. You’re a great judge of whether or not that’s true. If your ex hasn’t ever showed any signs of having self confidence issues, than you know that they already believe they’re the best and this is just a clumsy attempt to break up with you without breaking your heart.

The very best way to respond when someone says that you deserve to be with someone who is better is to agree with them. You obviously shouldn’t say to your partner that you believe they’re lacking if you hope to someday have a future with them. But it’s a great idea to agree that for now, you two may not be the right match.

The reason this is such an effective response to them is that it takes the control away from them and gives it back to you. No longer are you the one wondering what their words meant and you’re not left with the impression that the reason they dumped you was because they wanted to set you free to find a better partner. Your ex partner now is the one feeling the confusion and is wondering whether or not you ever saw them as a compatible partner. The benefit to this is that you’ll continue to be on their mind and they may even set out to prove to you that you’re wrong and they are indeed perfect for you.

How To Stop Sub-Vocalizing While You Read

Published

on

By

Not Just A Habit

Why do we sub-vocalize when we read? It’s important to understand the reason, if we want to learn to stop. It’s a habit, right? One we picked up when we first learned to read, and so we are almost helpless to stop. Now we have to either mumble quietly, silently move our lips, or at least say the words in your head when we read.

Everyone tells us that vocalizing is just a bad habit, and one we can break if we try hard enough. Maybe we should hold a pencil between our teeth, or hum a song, or count numbers out loud while we read. But these tricks don’t work, and the reason they don’t is because they either ignore, or are unaware of, the actual benefit we get from vocalizing.

Vocalizing is not just a habit. Vocalizing actually helps your reading comprehension, and that is why it’s so hard to stop. In order to stop vocalizing, you first need to know how vocalizing is helping your comprehension, and then learn how to replace this help.

Why Readers Vocalize

When we read, we don’t wait until the very end of each sentence before we start to understand it. Actually, we continuously process the sentence as we read along.

For example, if we read, “The big black dog chased the cat up a tree.”, we don’t read all ten words of the sentence, having no ideas about what we are reading, until we come to the period at the end. No, once we’ve read as far as, “The big black dog”, we’ve already formed an idea of what the sentence is about. And then when we come to, “chased the cat”, we continue to flesh out a larger meaning. By the time we get to, “up a tree”, we understand completely what’s going up a tree and why. We actually read by phrases, and each phrase in a sentence is an understandable element of thought on its own.

Sentences are usually made of multiple phrases, consisting of ‘though-units’ — which form parts of the larger whole. When we listen or speak, subtle intonations of the voice are used to indicate the beginning of each phrase. This is done so naturally, that we are not even consciously aware of it, but it does make the sentence clearer. There doesn’t even need to be a pause between the phrases — a slightly lower tone alone, is all that is needed indicate to the listener that the next thought is coming.

Listen carefully – to the first word – of each phrase.

You should notice that if you speak the sentence, the first word of each phrase is spoken in a slightly lower tone, to indicate the beginning of each phrase or thought. These audio clues are very helpful for understanding while listening to someone speak, but they are obviously missing in written text. Therefore we have a tendency to recite the sentence to ourselves, so that we can listen for where these cues would be.

For some reason, it’s just easier for us to identify the thoughts in sentences when we listen to them. This possibly has something to do with the fact that humans have been speaking for hundreds of thousands of years longer than they’ve been reading, and sub-vocalizing is a way of translating this new ‘written’ language into the verbal language which our brains are much more used to.

So the reason we vocalize is to make understanding easier; vocalizing is actually more of a crutch than a habit.

Reading Thought-Units

The way to stop sub-vocalizing is to learn to recognize the thought-units while you are reading. Then you wouldn’t need to listen for them. By reading thought-units, you would be replacing the vocalizing habit, rather than trying to suppress it. And it’s always easier to replace a habit with another, since it is difficult and often counter-productive to concentrate on NOT doing something.

Reading thought-units will do more than end your vocalizing habit — it will also increase your comprehension, your retention and your reading speed, because you will be concentrating on whole ideas rather than individual words. In fact learning to read thought-units and reading groups-of-words at-a-time, is the foundation of most speed reading courses.

Vocalizing is a habit, but you can replace it with a better one. In fact when you read by thought-units, you will find you no longer even feel like vocalizing. You will grasp the meaning of each phrase at a single glance, and you will find it easier to understand what you read. You will be thinking of the meaning of what you read, rather than the sound of the words.

Ibanex sc500, what someone called a special instrument that you won’t find everywhere, is made in Japan.

A hybrid guitar, its strings are made of nylon and its primarily designed as a classical instrument. The shape of the Ibanex sc500, as well as many of its features, is that of an electrical guitar. It has the more solid body of the latter.

Though modified, its body reminds us of a Saber, created in mahogany with top lamination of spruce. The outline of the Ibanex sc500 body has a binding with three stripes in black. The neck, made up of two pieces of mahogany, is bolted on with a four-screw neck joint that is all access.

The 25-inch length of scale found on the rosewood guitar fingerboard is greater than that of the Strat standard measure but smaller than a Les Paul. The Ibanex sc500 has 22 frets, comparatively small. Its dots, average size are abalone and beautiful. Another two dots of abalone camouflage the screws or boltings that keep the wooden bridge mounted.

The body of the Ibanex guitar sc500 has a high gloss body that is clear coated. The neck and the headstock back have a more matte feel to them. The headstock is slotted, with an Ibanez logo inlaid at the top. The sc500 also displays gold colored tuning pegs mounted on the side that include pretty tortoise like heads.

Six piece transducers are inside the guitar bridge, translating the strings’ vibrations into electric signals. The guitar has a preamp that is powered by batteries, along with a volume pot and a high low equalizer of dual bans. The back of the Ibanez guitar sc500 also has and an extra battery compartment so that you can easily replace its 9-volt battery.

Five Steps to Creating an Amazing Minecraft Server

Published

on

By

Minecraft has evolved into a popular game that is played by countless fans around the world on several Minecraft servers. If you plan to start Minecraft server hosting, here are some important tips to make your server stand out from the rest.

Develop an interesting theme

Choosing a theme is very important when it comes to making the ideal server. It is important to conduct some research to find out which themes are popular among players worldwide. It is also possible to add a variety of themes that more players can enjoy. Worlds separated by themes will increase your chances of landing more players in your server, thanks to the flexibility in gameplay.

Renting a server

A good server will probably cost money but will be necessary if you want to make an awesome Minecraft server host. Your PC can probably support you and a couple of friends, but if you want to have a community with hundreds of people, you need a server that can perform well 24×7. These can be expensive, but you get a good interface with which to set up and customer service will help you fix problems as and when they arise. It is also a good idea to buy your own domain once your server has reached a certain level of popularity.

Design an unforgettable spawn area

The first thing that players will see when they join your server is your spawn area. Having a creative and attractive spawn area will increase chances of players exploring your server since it’s their first impression of your server. The server rules can be placed in signs in the spawn area or a plugin can be installed to make sure users read the server rules before playing in the server.

Choosing and installing your plugins

Once you’ve figured out what kind of server you want, you need to install some plugins. There are a few basic plugins every server should have in order to make it safe and convenient for the players. This makes Minecraft server hosting much easier.

PermissionsEx: It gives you the ability to create permissions for players. You can make member groups and guest groups for players old and new that will give them the ability to play on the server and you can create an admin group for the people who will be in charge. You can make other groups too, depending on your requirements.

Essentials: These are basic requirements for any server. Essentials Spawn comes highly recommended for setting up your server and also to assign your re spawn areas. Essentials Chat for text formatting is another reliable option.

WorldEdit: Takes some getting used to, but helps a lot with the ability to quickly delete and add spaces and structures. It even has a copy paste option.

Advertise

After all the above steps are finished, you should start advertising your server in Minecraft forums. Your first priority for advertising would be the official Minecraft forum and then others. Give the forum users something to look at by designing attractive custom banners and installing a listener. A listener rewards users who voted for your server by gifting them in-game money and items.
